USB padlock provides very analogue security

Combination lock can stop others messing with your gadgets

We're not quite sure what the point of the USB Dial Padlock is but, as it's from Thanko, who cares, frankly?

Purchasers of the ¥780 (£3.70) device get to set whatever combination they require on the three-dial lock and then clip that onto any male USB jack to prevent anyone else from using it.

Lock up your cables

Thanko's suggestions include locking up a USB drive, preventing access to a mouse, a cable and even a USB microscope.

Quite what's to stop ne'er-do-wells just pocketing the whole lot is anyone's guess, but then again we're not privy to the obviously suspicious goings on chez Thanko.
